CHAMPAIGN -- A community leader may be gone, but he's not forgotten. Friday, people remembered Reverend Arthur Burks.

Part of Columbia Street was dedicated in his honor, right by his former home. Burks was with the Chief Cornerstone Baptist Church for more than 30-years.

His grandson says he wants the community to remember his touch. Burks passed away in 2006. Family, friends and the mayor were there to dedicate the sign.
